The cynical political reasoning behind this move is the same as that which informs the Democrats' position on school choice: Union members vote; poor people often don't (and their children, trapped in terrible schools, can't).
So much for the Democrats' carefully cherished self-image as the "party of compassion"; let's hope Americans don't forget, when the rubber hit the road, where the Democrats' first allegiance lay.
And I'd be willing to bet that a lot of those people collecting food stamps would rather simply get a job -- that is, if they could, in the Obama economy.
